Summary: This is my first laptop, and bought the Lenovo Thinkpad after researching. I wanted Windows7, no webcam, and most importantly wanted a keypad that felt as close to a desktop keypad as possible since I do a lot of writing. Am very pleased with the purchase.
Summary: This is the way to go... buy a top of the line $1000 laptop 3 years after its release for $250, and it is WAY better than a brand new $250-$400 laptop on the market today. This machine is FAST, wakes up quickly from sleep and start up and is extremely well built.
Summary: I needed a personal use laptop in addition to my work supplied laptop, i phone, ipad. i dropped in an additional 4 gb memory and a msata ssd and now have a extremely fast reliable pc. i've owneded/used thinkpads for 15 yrs.
Pros: Unit had a fresh install oh win 7 pro. very clean cosmetically. by appearance and responsiveness of the keyboard, the laptop likely saw little use. A new battery was also installed.
Cons: there was a noticeable scratch on the top. that's it
Solid laptop for the $200-$300 used price its going for

Summary: First thing first. Contact the seller in advance for specific specs to make sure you are getting the correct machine you are looking for. ParNel contacted me rather quickly on the specs and shipping the item a few hours after I placed the order with them.
